QUẢNG NGÃI — Holidaymakers are flocking to Ba Làng An Peninsula for its crystal clear waters, the musical sounds of nature, ancient rock formations, and fresh seafood.
Situated in Bình Sơn District in the central province of Quảng Ngãi, the place was known as Cap Batangan by locals during the French colonial period.
Ba Làng An (which means ‘land of three villages called An in Vietnamese) is used to describe the three villages of An Hải, An Vinh and An Kỳ.
To reach the peninsula, visitors have to drive around 20km along the Mỹ Trà – Mỹ Khê expressway from Quảng Ngãi City, turn into Highway 24B and then into a narrow path shaded by rows of almond trees.
Visitors are greeted with a picturesque landscape. From Ba Làng An Lighthouse, a structure from the colonial period, take a walk to the bare hill and take in a panoramic view of the peninsula.
A stunning view of the clear blue water carpeted by colourful coral reefs and overlapping heaps of basalt rocks that stretch out to sea will surely take your breath away. — VNS
